Oscar Weekend

Pixlr (2)And now it's March. I am really over winter and was hopeful that we might end up with an early spring considering some of the nice days we have had. Well, seems like it's not meant to be as they are forecasting a relatively big snow storm for Wednesday this week. Ugh. Last Friday we had a mix of rain and snow and tons of wind which caused a lot of issues all over the area. Luckily we were fine, didn't lose power or really encounter any other major problems. But I know a lot of people in the Northeast had to do deal with flooding, power outages, down trees etc. There is a tree down at the end of our street but luckily it didn't cause any real problems. 

I am definitely over winter and the snow/ice and ready for spring. I can't wait. well, in the meantime I'll cross my fingers that Wednesday's storm doesn't turn out too bad. I am already scheduled to work from home on Wednesday so that's nice at least. I do have a check up appointment at the orthodontist Thursday morning though. I'll need to figure out what to do with that. I guess I'll keep an eye on the forecast and decide tomorrow. I was planning on walking to the orthodontist and then walking to work but if it's the morning after the storm the sidewalks may not be in the best of shape yet. Guess we'll see. 

This past weekend was pretty low key. Saturday we went to the movies and saw "Game Night". Not the best movie ever but it was entertaining enough. Had lunch afterwards and I spent the evening reading. Sunday was Oscar Day so we ended up watching the Oscars which was enjoyable. It always does seem to drag on forever but it was still fun to watch. Jimmy Kimmel did a good job as the host and all in all it was pretty fun to watch. Had some cheese & crackers and chips & dip as well as some wine. Enjoyable night. 

Let's see, what else is new? Oh I got tickets to the Outlander Convention in New Jersey. It's not until August so still some time away but should be a fun day. I am going with my friend Falguni. Never been to any convention/ComiCon type thing so should be interesting. Not usually a fan of big crowds but should be fun, people watching, seeing the actors, etc. I haven't purchased any of the autograph or photo ops tickets though. Just have a hard time justifying the money for that.
